Dental Exams
Dental disease is a source of pain and infection—it can affect the systemic health of your horse, especially if undetected or left untreated. Routine examination by an experienced, licensed veterinarian will help detect dental disease and other health problems early—before they threaten the well-being of your horse. A juvenile horse should have a dental examination when it is foaled, at three months and then every six months until age five. For healthy adult horses, a yearly dental examination is recommended. Horses older than 20 or with a history of dental problems should return to a twice yearly schedule.

Physical Exams
During our standard exam, we’ll review your horse’s medical history, check his or her heart, lungs, stomach sounds, eyes and mouth. We’ll make recommendations for optimal care and diet, and ensure your horse is current on vaccinations.

Diagnostic Testing
Dr. Robertson, Dr. Wanner, and our staff are always continuing their education to keep up on the latest breakthroughs in diagnostic testing. Tests may require/include:

  • Blood, manure or urine samples
  • Ultrasound
  • Radiographs (X-rays)
  • Biopsies
  • Regional Nerve Blocks
  • Other techniques used to diagnose a wide range of health conditions

Deworming and Treatment for Internal Parasites
Unfortunately, all horses are susceptible to worms and other internal parasites. Regular deworming and/or manure testing is a crucial part of your horse’s health. We’ll review your current regimen of deworming medications and possibly prescribe new ones.

Prevention and Treatment for Infectious & Non-infectious Diseases
We strive to avoid serious problems before they happen, administering vaccines for tetanus, equine encephalomyelitis, West Nile Virus, and other preventable diseases. Nonetheless, if your horse contracts a disease, such as strangles or EHV (Equine Herpes Virus), we deliver state-of-the-art treatment to minimize damage and restore health.

Treatment for Injury or Trauma
When your horse has an accident and suffers an injury or other trauma, Select Equine Veterinary Services is there for you. Whether it’s a head injury, broken bone, wound or exertional rhabdomyolysis (tying-up), we’ll prescribe the best medications and therapies to keep your horse comfortable and speed up the healing process.

Treatment for Congenital Conditions
Some horses may have a congenital condition, ranging from hypothyroidism to stationary night blindness. We’ll diagnose your horse’s problems and make our best treatment recommendations.
